The Germanic Invasions of the fifth century brought about the collapse of the Roman Empire. This book will change the way we think about those Dark Ages, looking at the Barbarians themselves rather than just their impact on the Roman empire. Has an unpretentious and engaging reading style and a thoroughly useful "Aftermath" chapter to conclude and wrap-up Contains information on the Celts, Slavs and Asiatics, as well as the more commonly written about Germanic barbarians The first up-to-date book in years
